I can tell you this about the Firebolt: it cooks your right leg before the fan turns on, then your left thigh after it turns on :rolf:


About the weight thing, Buell did manage to keep the weight of the 1125 roughly the same as the XB. I think dry weight was even a few lbs less.

Original target weight for the engine that was taken for the VR was 150lbs... And HD fattened it up to 210.


If I had to guess, the XB engine is probably around 170-180. He probably just made up for the difference in weight on the chassis with things like the ZTL brakes, hubless wheels, etc.

Well... I recently missed a Drummer exhaust for $30 on eBay because I had to replace my fucking debit card. (They canceled it on the spot to send a new one)


How's the F4 holding up? :lol:

The other asshole
All is well :lol:

Just need to order my bar end mirror and go tag it. My grandfather offered to tag it for me because he thinks it's just the coolest shit ever :rolf: He's never been around sportbikes, but he likes fast shit. I personally wouldn't call the F4 "fast" :lol: but if you've never been around them like him I could see it sounding like a fast motherfucker with the lopey idle and fast/snappy revving.

Not nearly as bad as the sport touring windscreens that Zero Gravity makes for XB's





Unrelated, but it was in related images on google. Figure you'd appreciate it :lol:

That angle of the firebolt's headlight fairing is straight up accidental front facing camera thumb face :rolf:

I ordered bar end mirrors and flush mount front turn signals. Aiming to have it on the road for cars & coffee April 30th.


I read that first part like 8 times and still have no idea what the hell you're going on about :lol:


And wtf kind of trash shipping would take over a month? It's not like they're special order parts like I have to buy for the Buell :lol:

:rolf:

I'm aiming for that because apparently the dmv's system fucked up and there's no record of me taking the written test for my bike license which expired :lol: and I have to read the book and take the test again, which involves reading... and I fucking hate reading books :rolf:

Bike licenses expire in TN? What a stupid fucking state...
 

R13

The other asshole
I honestly don't remember if it expired, or if my actual license expired and they couldn't re-add the m-class thing on it because they lost the record of me having it... I honestly wasn't paying much attention :lol:

Either way I have to redo the dumb ass test :rolf:

The other asshole
I think I want a Ducati, despite the maintenance :rolf:

All of the Japanese bikes require valve work, throttle body syncs, and all that pain in the ass shit, why not throw in some rubber timing belt maintenance so I can be a high cunt on my duc :lol:

Question is: Which one do I want? The dream duc is the 999 obviously, but they're a bit uncommon. I like panigales, but they're built in some asian country so they probably suck and have valve problems too :lol:

I just want a duc so I can turn my nose up at everybody and pretend I'm better than all these dudes on there cliche R6's and gixxers

Guess I have to remind you about a certain bike that doesn't have valve problems, is affordable and not that common.
